lolol... C'mon Jill, I could never smack you!! I'm a couple hours south of Wally World so it's not like it's right around the corner.
As far as the Super Colossal bulbs go, as soon as I know exactly what I'm getting I'll be doing something with them. The thing with these is they are so big I could get KILLED on shipping if I'm not careful.
I was at my main growers barns this morning and we talked for about an hour or so walking around. He's been doing this for almost 50 years and he's dug the BIGGEST bulbs he ever has!!
For him as a grower and a strictly wholesale seller to greenhouses, nursery's, etc. They don't buy the bigger bulbs!! All they want are #1's, #2's and even #3's
He has a TON of Jumbo's and a bunch of Colossal's. We would rather use the smaller bulbs for making seed but he'll be using a lot of the bigger ones this year.
We started talking turkey and he knows I'm a businessman. I know all about the supply and demand formula... I don't want to beat him up on pricing but he realizes that if he discounts them to me a little I can in turn do the same!! As soon as I can get a GOOD handle on what the availability is I'll be offering some nice discounts to move some of the ones he has a LOT of.
Just to give you an idea I had several hundred Colossal Stardust a couple of years ago when I my retail store(what a mistake that was) and I sold them for $5.00 each and they sold out in about 4 DAYS.
These will be defintely cheaper than that!!
You need to call me when you're ready to order!!
I brought in about 20,000 bulbs today and I'm bringing in another 40,000 on Monday so I'm starting to ramp things up down here.
I want it to keep snowing like crazy up North so all you Northerners stay in the house, get cabin fever, go on the internet and spend money....lolol...
It's Feb 4th and I have my fricking A/C on in my office, 86 here today, that's just not right....lol...
